Ate here with some coworkers and enjoyed what we got.  I ordered the spinach dip and they ran out of dip so I just got the mataza type bread (at a 70 percent discount) and it was very good.  Most of my coworkers got the Greek Meatballs which they enjoyed.  Service was good but if you sit outside be prepared...

It would take me 10 visits at least to taste all the wonderful choices on the menu! I could make a meal or three just from the appetizers! Knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff and very authentic flavors. Go with an appetite and friend who like to share dishes to make the most of your visit. Live music and a little entertainment...

I had an amazing experience at the Acropolis in Ybor City. First, the waiter was absolutely wonderful. He was attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. The food came out quickly and it was very good. I highly recommend this place for lunch.

I recently went to this Acropolis Greek Taverna (in Ybor City, Tampa) with my family for dinner and we had a great time. Food - The food was very good. We got a sampling appetizer and enjoyed everything that came in it (there wasn't enough pita provided, though, so we ended up ordering two extra orders). I wouldn't, however, recommend... More

The food was really good. Waitresses make a Greek dance routine every hour during happy hours which is fun to watch so basically you get a dinner and a mini-show ))))... But service needs some improvement - rolling eyes and making faces doesn't feel like you welcomed there.

It was a beautiful November day. Mid 70's. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather, the interesting assorted colored hair on passersby, the Rolls Royce, and motorcycles. Very nice. We love Greek food. This was excellent. I ordered a veggie wrap with hummus and feta. Delicious. Companions had gyros that they enjoyed. Highly recommended.

We visited with a party of 6. We had the place to ourselves on a Tuesday night. Special requests were accommodated enthusiastically. The food was well done Greek tourista fare, nothing special. Prices a little high for what is essentially a chain. Outdoor table options ruined by the hookahs.

I say pleasant surprise only because I don't typically eat Greek food. I came with family and friends for a total of 12 and we all enjoyed it. Everyone loved their food but I had the Maui Maui and it was very very tasty. Alexandra was our server and she was very friendly and attentive. The decor is very nice... More

The food was just ok, nothing else. Food seemed to me regular, only with Greek names. I was just expecting more, maybe we just didnt try enough variety. Service just regular
